Transportation Efficiency

Fleet efficiency is an area ACCO Brands monitors on a daily, weekly and monthly basis. Improving fleet efficiency is important to ACCO Brands and several initiatives have reduced the impact vehicles we use in conducting our business have on the environment.

  • We implemented a driver incentive program. A goal is set for fuel consumption and if the driver meets the goal, they receive a monetary bonus every six months. The program helps the company reduce its overall fuel consumption by motivating drivers to monitor their fuel consumption.

  • We work with drivers to decrease their idle time, since a truck can burn at least one gallon of diesel fuel during each idle hour.  When this program began, overall average idle time was about 8 percent of total operating hours per month.  Our most recent measurement showed idle time had dropped to 5.21 percent. 

  • We track out-of-route miles to ensure we use the most effective routes to deliver our products. Currently, we travel less than 1 percent out of route each month.

  • We also track empty miles to ensure our trucks are full when on the road and have put processes in place to lower the number of miles our trucks travel empty.  Our goal is to keep our trucks filled and hauling freight at all times.
